Room Eighteen Modern Chinese Set Meal @ Tropicana City Mall, PJ

Room Eighteen is another new chain oriental restaurant introduced by Tai Thong Resources Group that mostly target teenagers to young working adults as their customer base. Their concept is to serve fast quality Chinese food with an equal relaxed quality environment which we usually experience only in an authentic Chinese restaurant.

Recently, I was with Zoe at Room Eighteen in Tropicana City Mall for a redemption of modern Chinese set meal from MyDEAL which featured 6 dishes and 2 drinks for the both of us. I have dined in Room Eighteen before but as for this branch, it is my very first time.

Golden lighting with golden plated wall and yellow cushioned seats are of the setting in Room Eighteen, resembling a luxurious dining environment.

Iced Ying Yong
A drink that consisted the combination of tea and coffee, originated from Hong Kong. It was decent in taste.

And our 6 dishes of the set meal for the night were as followed.
Koh Samui's Hot Stone Shark's Fin Soup
Apart from the soup is being served in the hot stone, this acclaimed Koh Samui's shark's fin soup is very identical to the one we usually had. Whether it is incidental or coincidence, I find the soup is too starchy for my liking. Shark's fin were lacking as well.

Stir-Fried Venison with Chinese Cruller
The Chinese called it as luk yuk which literally means meat from the deer. The deer meat is stir-fried with oil fritters which made up a good unique combination of a tender meat and crunchy fritters experience in their flavourful specialty sauce. I'd have always love deer meat due to it's tenderness and this didn't disappoint.

Home Signatured Mixed Vegetables
Consisted of carrots, green peas, dry Chinese fungus and lotus root. Such a vegetarian cuisine!

Deep Fried Squid with Salted Egg Yolk
Lovely dish with a lovely experience. The salted egg yolk melts in your mouth even before you start to chew on the squid. The lovely preparation here should serve as a benchmark for this style of cuisine. This got to be our pick for that night.

Signature Pumpkin Fried Rice
Initially I thought this cuisine will resulted to a very sweet taste from the pumpkin flavour. Well, I was wrong and much to my delight, the pumpkin flesh is diced instead of being all over the fried rice. It tasted like an ordinary fried rice and the pumpkin taste was insignificant.

Sweetened Sago Watermelon & Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera and watermelon simply made a good combination for a cold and refreshing dessert.

I supposed the deal is pretty good as we get to experience some special cuisine in a cozy environment which we seldom have the chance to.

For the deal, we paid a total of RM 39.90 nett for a single voucher which entitle us for the 6 course Chinese set meal redemption. Total savings from the deal was RM 63.60 (RM 103.50 - RM 39.90). I wonder whether will there be anyone willing to pay this set meal at the normal price of RM 103.50. As for me, I will definitely not and will only revisit for their future valuable promotion, if there is any.

Atmosphere: 7/10
Food: 5.5/10
Price: 3/10 (base on normal price)
Verdict: Food was decent but the normal item are exorbitantly priced!
